I wonder why it does that .....interesting .
it seems to be that they create a larger 'spider' to hide under. as they move the other 'spider' moves, or as the article says, the spider will shake the web (i assume this is to animate the disguise and make it seem real)

WOW!

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

Maybe they were building idols to appease the spider gods for the upcoming apoc? :P

Gotta love nature though you can always find something new and amazing from it.

That is really interesting. The article states there are other spider "sculptors" in the family of Cyclosa. ​I wonder what kinds of scuptures the whole species exhibits. Get it? Sculptor? Exhibits? A spider "art walk" *chuckle*

I think it is more like  if a spider eating wasp were to see it .it would attack the decoy while the spider itself would be able to get away from said  predator.At least thats what I think.Just my opinion.

To me doesnt look like decoy. It looks like that small spider wanted to show himself bigger so that his height scare away predators.
Why? if it's realistic enough to scare off a predator its realistic enough to be a decoy, no? It probably ticks both of those boxes anyways IMO.

But how come that same doesnt scared prey?
That's a good question. I'll bet there's an extra layer of complex behaviour involved just around not scaring off lunch.
